Guided Seal Hike

August 11, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Suggested donation $5/person
Join CCS educators for a hike to the gray seal haul-out in Truro. Learn about the different species of seals found on Cape Cod, their role in the local marine ecology, and seal research currently underway at CCS.
Please note that, due to COVID-19 related restriction, reservations are strictly limited to eight people or less per hike. We are unable to accommodate more than one group per hike. 

Attendees must bring and wear a mask and observe the State of Massachusetts physical-distancing recommendations. No material or equipment will be passed around, so please bring your own binoculars.

Meet your guide at the parking lot off of High Head Road in North Truro. Take High Head Rd off of Rt 6. After 1/4 mile or so take the dirt road on left with sign that has a bike and says trail. At the end of the dirt road (1/4 mile) there is parking lot. The guide will meet you in the parking lot. Do not start walking out to the beach.

Wear comfortable shoes, and be prepared for a 1-2 mile hike over soft sand. Bring sunscreen and water, and dress for the weather.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jesse Mechling, Director of Education, at 508-487-3622 x 114 or email [email protected].
